Question: Does the General Conference have official statements about ethical issues like abortion, homosexuality, smoking, human gene therapy and cloning, care for the dying, environment, AIDS, and alike?

Answer: Yes, special committees of experts composed by representatives from all over the world have studied several ethical issues and produced statements and guidelines on the above mentioned topics and many other issues.

A copilation of these documents has been published by the GC Communications Department in a 180 pages book called "Statements, Guidelines & Other Documents."

Several of these documents have been translated into different languages and should be available at your Union’s Health Ministries Department. The English documents are also available on the Internet at: http://www.adventist.org/beliefs/statements/index.html

Together with Dr. Harvey Elder, a specialist in AIDS from Loma Linda, we have prepared a one-page three-folded flyer for free distributation with concise facts about the cause and prevention of AIDS. This is available in several languages and can be downloaded (Click here).
